An essential point of the learning and teaching environment today, is the need to pioneer a new approaches which go beyond some "standard" theorizations of pedagogy. We know by experiences that the most successful solutions should not only engage the students and the teachers but some aspect of those approaches should build on the transformative potential of a digital age, as well as emerging insights into human behavior and the human brain. We must seek to set a standard for innovation in pedagogy and commit to its advance. In this paper we review some existing approaches to learning and we describe a new scientific pragmatic approach. This approach based on the real daily practice of scientific researchers (in Mathematics and Physics and not just a theoretical recipe) gives a new insights to learning methods and promotes the creative side of learning.
